Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Silves, Portugal your home away from home

Silves, the ancient capital of the Algarve, has evidence of settlements on the land reaching back to 1,000BC, and the old town is awash with fascinating sites from throughout the ages! Surrounded by rich colours of orange orchards and almond groves, the town of Silves is a sleepy town surrounded by the rolling foothills of the Monchique Mountains, perfect for an exploration and investigation of the Algarve.

Things to do on holiday in Silves, Portugal

Although many of the town’s most important historical remains were destroyed during the 1755 earthquake, the impressive sandstone Silves Castle remained strong, due to the huge Moorish walls which support it. Silves Castle is the largest castle in the Algarve, and is certainly among the most beautiful. The Museu Arqueologico has managed to collate and display various artefacts from throughout the town’s history, and pieced them together for visitors to get a clearer understanding of Silves’ history and influence. The Roman Ponte Romana and 13th Century Cathedral also make for interesting viewing if you have the time whilst staying in a Silves property.

Despite a huge amount being made out of Silves’ ancient heritage, there is much more to taking accommodation in Silves than touring historical sites. A Silves property or villa in Silves’ outskirts is the perfect base for golfing holidays to the Algarve or for exploration of the Algarve. Centrally located, accommodation in Silves can be used for holidays in the beach, in the Sierra de Monichique or exploring the large Algarve towns of Loule, Portimao, Albufeira or Lagoa. The famous Algarve beaches of Carvoeiro are just a 15 minute drive from self catering accommodation in Silves, with all their attractions and sports facilities.

The golf courses of Vale de Milho, Quinta do Gramacho and Vale da Pinta can all be reached very easily from a Silves villa too. There are public courses dotted across the countryside, so finding a round from Silves accommodation will not prove difficult.

Places to holiday in Silves, Portugal

Lagoa is only 8km from accommodation in Silves, and is one of the most picturesque towns you will be able to find in Portugal. Located at the summit of one of the coastal hills, Lagoa is also a magnificent base for golf and sightseeing, and the golden beaches of Ferragudo and Carvoeiro are just miles away.

Weather in Silves, Portugal

Summers in Silves are very warm, and Silves villas with pools are hugely sought after during June, July and August. Temperatures from October until April are cooler, but remain blissfully warm, with monthly averages staying between 15 and 22˚C, perfect for walking, golfing or cycling throughout the area.

Flights to Silves, Portugal

Located just 30 minutes from Faro Airport (FAO), a holiday villa in Silves is very easily reached. Faro receives multiple daily flights from across the UK, provided by a range of luxury or ‘no frills’ airlines. When you arrive in Faro, it is probably a good idea to take a hire car, not only to reach your accommodation in Silves, but also so that you can easily reach the beaches or attractions in the Silves area without having to rely on public transport, meaning you can get the most from the flexibility and space provided by taking a private Silves property for your holiday.

                                                              This villa was recommended by friends who stayed last year. We were two families (four adults, six children). All questions throughout the booking process were answered via email promptly. There was a friendly welcome and a lovely bottle of port. The villa itself is just Amazing. Even better than the pictures. High quality finish and all utensils etc provided. The kids begged to spend the days in the pool. We made traditional lemonade using the lemons on the trees in the gorgeous gardens. Evenings were spend in the casablanca suite playing pool. Overall a first class holiday location.Cannot wait to go again :)

                                                              We took our two children to the villa on our family holiday. The villa is in a quiet location and is maintained to the highest standards. The interior design is considered and beautiful and all of the rooms and amenities are first class. Sean and Douglas could not be more welcoming - greeting us on our arrival and making sure we settled in. They were close by if we needed anything and checked on us once in a while to make sure everything was still ok. We would definitely recommend the villa to anyone visiting the area. First class!

                                                              A great villa close to Silves

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              This was our second visit to Monte Nora. Having stayed one week in 2014, we immediately booked this years two week stay on our return. The villa is well situated being close to the 'developed strip' but looking down onto it - and perhaps half an hours drive to many of the beaches and attractions (you do need a vehicle to get the most from your stay). The villa is kept spotlessly clean, and the garden and pool well maintained. It comes with everything you could want for your stay. Silves is the nearest town and has supermarkets and restaurants as well as a health centre and pharmacy, should the need arise. Silves is an historic centre that shouldn't be missed, but then there is so much to see - even the reservoirs to the north are worth a visit. We went east to the Spanish Border (VR de S Antonio, and took a train ride from there to Faro return), looked in on the villages of Tavira and Olhao, a little bit of Faro, Loule (and the markets), a tour of the hills north of Loule taking in Alte and Salir - not all on the same day I hasten to add. We went as far west as Praia da Luz, took the boat around the rocks of Ponta da Piedade, saw Alvor, spent time on the beach at Praia da Rocha, visited Ferragudo and Carvoeiro, the Algarve Shopping complex and Albufeira! We would recommend the villa to friends and relatives and would have no hesitation in returning, but feel we must also visit other countries!!
